Brooke Marie Hyland (born January 30, 1998) is the eldest child of Randy and Kelly Hyland and is the older sister of Josh Hyland and Paige Hyland.


Brooke began dancing at the age of 2 at the ALDC and was one of Abby's favorites prior to filming Dance Moms.[1] However as she got older, she started to lose interest in dance and Abby started to grow cold towards her. During her time on the show, Brooke was the oldest permanent dancer on the team and due to this her solos were often not aired.[2]

She appeared on the show alongside her sister Paige and mother Kelly until Season 4, where they were dismissed from the team following a physical altercation between Kelly and Abby in Big Trouble in the Big Apple. This altercation later resulted in a lawsuit.

After the show, Brooke graduated from Franklin Regional High School in 2016.[3] She later went on to attend Ohio University as a business major[4] and graduated in 2019 with degrees in Marketing and Management Information Systems.[5] She now works in influencer relations.
